Gratitude Provides Original Music and Licensing for Advertising, Film, TV and Multi-Media Projects - Scott Feldman is Named Producer, Gratitude Sound West

Prominent music company Gratitude Sound, headquartered in Boston, MA, is expanding its national footprint by opening a West Coast office in Los Angeles. The announcement was made today by Bryan Hinkley, Founder, Gratitude Sound.

Based in Los Angeles, Scott Feldman is now the face of Gratitude Sound West. As Producer, he will pursue new clientele across the film, TV, and advertising industries for the company. He will also work with emerging musicians and songwriters for licensing representation.

Gratitude regularly composes and produces original music for agencies, production companies, and direct to brands. The company's prominent client base has included such top tier brands as Reebok, Dunkin' Donuts, GMC, and Planet Fitness, among others. Most recently, Gratitude created music for Simple Mobile (Hill Holliday), Gulf States Toyota (MMB), and Wrangler Jeans (Toth+Co).

"After a good amount of consideration, red-eye flights, and getting the chance to know and work with Scott, it became clear to me that now was the perfect time for us to establish a presence on the West Coast," said Hinkley. "We have a musical style that's organic and unique, and there is a great deal of opportunity for our services in LA. Obviously, there's a healthy amount of competition there as well, but I truly believe that once potential clients know more about us, our music will become highly sought after."

Adds Feldman, "I am extremely excited to be the West Coast Producer for Gratitude Sound. In addition to making significant inroads with LA-based agencies, production companies, and music supervisors, I'm very much looking forward to signing and working with new talent. Gratitude has a remarkable body of work, roster and reputation. I'm thrilled to be a part of their success."

SongHunters Testimonials

  • "I am one of the top mixers and producers in the country and have had years of experience in the music and associated businesses.

    My company licenses songs and seeks songs to be licensed for films, TV and Commercials and thus I have worked with many people in the licensing industry and discovered there is a wide range and degree of service and quality when you seek songs.

    In my experience, I have found that The SongHunters exhibit a real knack at delivering the right songs and offering a wide range of music in all areas to choose from.

    Dave Hnatiuk, David Weiss and Doug Diamond are hands on and believe the quality service does not stop at sending a music file to choose from. They believe in follow-up and follow-through and are there for you as long as and to the extent that you need them.

    They not only provide great songs for your needs, but also provide you with some great solicitations for your music on their own projects. Do I recommend them? You bet I do! And that recommendation is earned, not just given!"
